Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Justice's monster beats, massive hooks, thunderous drums, and near-religious determination to demolish dance floors cast them in a light no contemporary can catch. The group's US debut single, "Waters Of Nazareth" arrived in 2006 and solidified their sound: huge slabs of beats, brutal strings, and cathartic release. That record sets the stage for this, their debut full-length, boasting the already ubiquitous disco pop anthem "D.A.N.C.E.", which features the best English children's choir since "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2".

Amazon.com

Justice is the moniker of the Paris-based production duo Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay. Their approach to crazy-quilt dance-pop hybridism is infectious, if a tad off-putting here and there. The duo rose to fame due to an MP3 single and super smart video for the excellent, kiddy-chorused house-pop number "D.A.N.C.E." in 2007, and they soon thereafter signed to the suitably named label Banger. They manage to make really silly and fun music in a way that frequently comes off in a pretentious manner. It's ridiculous to name your album after a symbol, especially if it's . This is not meant derogatorily. Really. Justice does appear to be that rare breed of dance artist equally capable of stimulating the body and the mind, though neither Richard James nor the Basement Jaxx need fear this act. After just one listen to "Waters of Nazareth," it's very difficult to avoid wondering "how the hell did they mix and match noise and pop so beautifully" while also dancing furiously. --Mike McGonigal

All I can say about this album is WHOA

If you have a powerful stereo this album will rock the house like nothing I've ever heard. Its incredibly dynamic, almost tearing the air around you. Mix in a little alcohol and prepare to be transported to planet Justice!!

I wouldn't pick this up if you only have a boom box, there is a lot of transient sub-bass that needs real woofers (12"+) to do it justice.

The waning EDM explosion, with its abrasive textures and high-energy (some might say "obnoxious") disposition, owes a lot to Justice's seminal debut. When it was released, this album was considered a throwback to 70's electronic music tropes; with the benefit of hindsight, we can see it as the decidedly-middlebrow herald of one of the most well-defined (and, among those same "middlebrow" listeners, reviled) eras of mainstream dance music in history. Skrillex and Diplo probably owe Justice some credit for the sounds they pioneered on this record. So do big-tent music festivals in general.

I'm not a huge fan of big-tent EDM, and like most people, I'm over The Drop. (It was fun while it lasted, but seriously, it's over.) Again to Justice's credit, this album doesn't abuse The Drop, in part because it predates the fad. It does, however, contain more than a few bewildering missteps; "DANCE" and "Tthee Ppaarrttyy" in particular are tasteless and irritating. Overall, the album's pacing is pretty strange, despite more than a few pieces of impressive musical craftmanship. Time will tell if those flashes of brilliance were just flukes, or the warning shots of a brilliant and truly memorable career.

It is rare to find an album which delivers excellence in every track. Sadly, this album is pretty typical in that fashion, but it makes up for it with 4 or 5 excellent songs that are really quite unique. Genesis, Waters of Nazareth, and Let There Be Light are really good tracks, they have the depth and flow of an older classic rock song like AC/DC or Boston, but offer the deep bass and funky beat that will have you nodding your head with the music. The songs are intense and they just make you feel good; I've found they're especially good for driving fast on the highway at night. If Genesis is playing and I am in a fast car, then that's it -- we're getting there in half the time.

I love this album. Phantom and Phantom, Pt. 2 are some of my very most favorite electronic tracks. I am also a big fan of the album in general. I think this album has been fairly groundbreaking. As per usual, my experience buying on Amazon was great. I definitely liked this album more than their second one.

If the opening seconds of Justice's debut album, " ," don't tell you a thing about what you're in store for, you aren't listening. The mudded brass come marching in like they are coming to destroy, and in a way they are. Justice is a dance/electronica group, to be sure, but to label them as such is travesty in and of itself. Like that imperial death march, Justice is here to destroy. In this case, they have come to demolish your preconceived notions about what dance music is and what it can be. Now, until recently I have avidly campaigned against the genre which I feel is cluttered with mundane "artists" who rely on bad samples and horrendous loops to captivate a somewhat dimwitted audience. My opinion is slowly starting to change as I am introduced to artists who are challenging this perception. Justice is one of them.

From the opening track to the very last second of "," I found myself, not only captivated, but amazed, entertained, and energized. Justice comes off as a bull charging towards its victim, with so much momentum and energy that attempting to slow it down would be a fruitless endeavor. Their songs are constantly changing, never relying on a single loop or phrase for too long. And these songs are not lite, easy-listening electronica songs either. They're harsh and brash, with the mids turned up too high for comfort. It's not your average dance album, it is a revelation!

"Let There Be Light" begins with a near-unlistenable melody, but adds in drums, a thumping bassline, and so many cuts and glitches that you'll be in love with it before you know it. It concludes with an absolutely awesome composition that harmonizes synths with synths in a way that sounds like it'd be better suited for the closing credits of a Super Mario Bros. game than a dance record. "D.A.N.C.E.

I remember the time I went to Justice's performance about 3 years ago, and that was the first time ever I listened to songs by Justice. They performed at a mid-size, electro club in Seoul, Korea, and I believe that there were more than 300 people at the club that night to listen to Justice performing and to have some fun! They basically played songs from their first album "Cross." I had to buy their album the very next day of the performance because both their performance and songs were so good that I couldn't get them out of my mind.

All songs in this album in general have great melody lines, which are so good that almost every song can be a big hit, and I am not exacerbating. Also, it is really amazing how they composed in ways to blend all those noisy sounds, hooks, and melodies. It's just they did it so well, and especially if one considers the fact that this album was their debut album, everyone should feel the same or at least give them some acknowledgement. Justice used lots of dirty, noisy sounds in the album other than addictive melody lines. Talking about techniques used in the album, I can tell that Justice uses multiple layers and clouds in their compositions, and such layering multiple chunks of sounds to make up rhythms and essentially the music gives very complex, yet rich sounds. In addition, it's a bit obvious, but still it's worth pointing out they used synthesizers. Unfortunately, my knowledge in computer music is not at the level where I can tell which types of synthesizers were used by hearing songs. Yet, I am very inspired by this album in that it kind of showed me how synthesizers can be used in different ways and what kind of sounds one can generate with synthesizers.
